This site is NOT intended to replace legal representation. We aspire to give you comprehensive, full spectrum information, but we are NOT legal experts, legal professionals, or financial advisers. We are people who have experienced the system and who have consequently studied it and become debt counselors; we are setting out to share our experience, so that you can learn from our mistakes and benefit from our experience and knowledge. We want you to know that you are not alone, and we will share what we have, what we know, and what happened in our individual situations. We provide information and good counsel. Damn good counsel.
